When a patient has yellowed teeth with no dental restorations, Dr. Lynn Leyde may recommend teeth whitening in Shoreline, Washington. Other shades of staining, like brown and gray, will not bleach as well, or at all. Dental restorations, like dental fillings and dental crowns, will not be affected by the whitening product. Because of this, any dental restorations would stand out against a newly bleached smile. Our office offers Zoom!® whitening and at-home whitening.

If you choose to have a Zoom! whitening treatment in our office, our dentist will apply the whitening product directly to your teeth. The whitening product is customized to your individual needs. With the use of a special light, our dentist will enhance the effects of the whitening product. Zoom! whitening offers the fastest way to whiten your smile. Patients can see dramatic results in just one 45 minute treatment. However, to reach the level of whitening you desire, more than one treatment may be necessary.

With at-home bleaching, our dentist will supply you with a custom-made bleaching tray and a gel whitening product. Wear the tray with the whitening solution as prescribed by our dentist. Usually, patients wear the tray for several hours during the day or during the night for up to four weeks.
